[Pure Zen Smoothie] Hawthorn Berry, Papaya, Honey, Almond Milk
This is a keeper – it’s a really good skin tonic recipe and full of nourishing ingredients. Papaya has a high antioxidant rating, is wonderful in the summer for cooling the body. Hawthorn berries feature in TCM food therapy quite a bit as they promote the health of the circulatory system and heart and help strengthen blood vessels. They are also known for lowering cholesterol and help reduce anxiety.
